Try to get a CABNE that ISN'T week 40. Those will overclock the best.

CAB2Es are pretty much hit-and-miss.

CABGEs are the lowest overclocking of them all.

I would get one of these Opterons... Looks alot better for OC'ing then a 3700. Monarch Computer has the 148 for 20 bucks less than Newegg- http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merch...ory_Code=amdop

Plus you're from Venus, TX and the name of these cores is Venus.

How do I know if it is week 40 or not? Also does that mean that all the CABNE's after week 40 are good too, or they stopped making CABNE's at week 40 in which case all the previous weeks are better?

Please check my other thread and post Opteron related things in there so we don't clutter up this thread.

CABNEs, CABYEs, CAB2Es, and CABGEs are all made in the same weeks (I think) so there isn't really, "They stopped making this so they went on to this." You'll find Week 40 CABNEs as well as CABGEs. On the IHS, it'll say 05--. In the place of the -- there is a number that is the week #.
